Commentary By: Gordon King
Genetic manipulation of human DNA is becoming more advanced as the end of an age draws near. Restructuring complex DNA strands requires increased knowledge and technology, both of which were unheard of before this time in history.
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.“
With that being said, have we not seen in the past the same manipulation of human DNA? Yes we have! In the days of Noah the sons of God were having sexual relations with human women. Their offspring are referred to as “Nephilim”, biblical giants. They corrupted the seed of man, changing the very DNA God created!
“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.“
The Hebrew definition of “Nephilim” in Strong’s Concordance:
Original Word: נְפִילִים: “giants,” name of two peoples, one before the flood and one after the flood
Fallen angels manipulated human DNA, altered God’s genetic code for human life, and attempted to corrupt all flesh. Why would they do that, for what reason? These fallen angels were led by Satan, whose task it is to destroy the creation of God Almighty, and prevent the birth of Jesus Christ!
Scripture tells us that in the last days it will be like in the days of Noah.
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.“
People seemed to be living life as normal, so what?! Well, we need to look at the entire picture. People were not just living normal lives as we would believe, they were evil and only had evil intent!
“The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.“
It was so bad that God even regretted making humans! Not only that, but most flesh was corrupted by the fallen angels. Extra-biblical literature goes into more detail regarding this time period, such as the book of Enoch. The story of the time of Noah in the book of Enoch correlates to biblical teachings. The book even goes into detail giving the names of the original fallen angels who made a pact with each other to take for themselves human women as wives and bear children. Many believers may not take this book to be truth, and I cannot say that I blame them, however, it is quite fascinating to say the least. I have read much of the book of Enoch, and as much as I want to believe it to be the truth, I cannot base any foundation upon it since it is not part of the bible. However, just because something is not in the bible does not make it a lie either, we must take it with a grain of salt.
‘And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: “Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.” 3 And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: “I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of great a great sin.” 4 And they all answered him and said: “Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.”
“9 And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. 10 And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones. 11 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. 12 And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. 13 Semjaza taught enchantments and root − cuttings, Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal taught astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. 14 And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven.”
These fallen angels apparently taught man various things for human advancement and knowledge, yet would ultimately lead to his demise. Whether or not the writings in the book of Enoch are factual or not, the Nephilim existed, they were the creation of fallen angels, and they were evil giants! They taught man evil things in the days of Noah, and I would say that they have and are doing the same thing today!
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.“
The world was corrupt and filled with violence, and “all” flesh was corrupted, even the animals. The book of Enoch tells us that the fallen angels had sinned with animals as well. One could only guess what that means! However, we have heard of animal-human hybrids of ancient times in various mythologies, religions, and cultures. Perhaps this is where they came from. And when you think about that, then think about what is happening now in modern times, cloning of human DNA with animal DNA. Interesting, as in the days of Noah!
The world at the time of Noah was evil continually, manipulation of human and animal DNA, and I would expect plant DNA as well, violence, and ungodliness. Can you see a comparison to the times that we live in today? Morals and values have declined to the point of no return, evil and wickedness is prevalent throughout the world, ungodly behavior is rampant, the antichrist spirit is increasing daily, and scientists are manipulating human, animal, and plant DNA! As the prophet Daniel said, knowledge shall be increased in the last days, and we have seen a dramatic increase in knowledge over the past several years and it continues to increase.
When the ungodly fail to listen to the godly, when they mock and scoff then turn their backs in disbelief and continue on in their wicked ways, they will perish as they did in the days of Noah!
Daniel, the prophet of the Old Testament, gives us a glimpse in chapter 12, of what will happen in the end times.
“At that time Michael shall stand up,
The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
And there shall be a time of trouble,
Such as never was since there was a nation,
Even to that time.
And at that time your people shall be delivered,
Every one who is found written in the book.
2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
Some to everlasting life,
Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.“
Listen to God Almighty, heed the words of our Savior Jesus Christ, for the time is soon coming of great wrath upon the world. The days are short, and we have but only a little time here on earth. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved! Turn you life over to Him, for He is the only way to eternal life, the only way to heaven.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
